Highlights of the Year

Outstanding publications

Results from our work in the ANR project Ctrl Green (see Section 7.2.1) were published in IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering [16].

Our work on Control of Autonomic Parallelism Adaptation on Software Transactional Memory [20] was nominated in the short list for best papers at the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016), Innsbruck, Austria, July 2016.


We have been invited to participate to the organization of events, which highlight our active presence in the scientific life in the two domains which we are bridging :

  • autonomic computing:

    Eric Rutten is PC co-chair of the International Workshop on Autonomic High Performance Computing (AHPC 2016) (http://hpcs2016.cisedu.info/2-conference/workshops---hpcs2016/workshop08-ahpc) as part of the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016) (http://hpcs2016.cisedu.info or http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs16), July 18 - July 22, 2016, The University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria ; and PC member of the two major conferences on the topic : the 13th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC 2016) Wuerzburg, Germany, July 19-22, 2016 (http://icac2016.uni-wuerzburg.de) and the 4th International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (ICCAC 2016), Augsburg, Germany on September 12-16, 2016 (http://iccac2016.se.rit.edu), Part of FAS* - Foundation and Applications of Self* Computing Conferences, Collocated with the IEEE Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing System Conference.

    He is PC member of the 2017 edition of these two conferences as well.

    He is invited editor of Cluster Computing, The Journal of Networks, Software Tools and Applications (Springer), foe the special issue of ICCAC 2015 Best Papers (http://link.springer.com/journal/10586/19/2/page/1).

    He is PC member for the SEfSAS Book 3 (Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems: Assurances) Volume 3 to be published by Springer LNCS as nr. 9640 in 2017.

    Gwenaël Delaval is PC member of the International Workshop on Autonomic High Performance Computing (AHPC 2016).

  • control:

    Eric Rutten is organizer of an Open Invited Track on "Control for Computing Systems" at the 20th IFAC World Congress, to be held in Toulouse, July 9-14, 2017, (https://www.ifac2017.org/OIT#geht5).

    He is PC member of the 13th International Workshop on Discrete Event Systems (WODES 2016), Xi'an, China on May 30 - June 1, 2016 (http://wodes2016.diee.unica.it).

    He is on the IFAC Technical Committee 1.3 on Discrete Event and Hybrid Systems, (http://tc.ifac-control.org/1/3/) and on the IEEE Control Systems Society Discrete Event Systems Technical Committee (http://discrete-event-systems.ieeecss.org).

Invited talk

Eric Rutten was invited to give a talk at the 9th Cloud Control Workshop (by invitation only), Stockholm, June 27-29 2016 (http://cloudresearch.org/workshops/9th) and at the séminaire LIP / Avalon, 16 février 2016, ENS Lyon (https://intranet.inria.fr/Actualite/SEMINAIRE-16-02-16-ERIC-RUTTEN-ENS-DE-LYON).
